Pupil Voice

There are a number of exciting, new activities for the pupils to participate in during Golden Time.  Pupils were asked about the activity they had chosen to take part in and if they enjoyed it.  This is what they said……

Amelia said, “I went to cooking club with Mrs Short, I chose cooking club because it would be fun.  I wanted to make a cupcake but instead we made a fruit salad.”

Jessica said, “I went to cooking club, I chose cooking because I cook a lot with my Nan and I want to get better at it.  I enjoyed making my fruit salad.”

Taylor said, “I went to sports club with Mr Richards, I love taking part in lots of sport, especially football, which I play every week.”

Spencer said, “I went to table top games, I loved playing on the table basketball. When I went to flip out, I played table basketball and scored a really good score.”

Alejandro said, “I went to cooking club, I chose to go to cooking club because I enjoy making and decorating food.  It’s fun!  My favourite food is my mum’s homemade chicken and noodle soup.”

Information

School Lockers

Due to limited space in the children’s lockers, we would like to encourage your child, should they wish to use a back pack, to bring in a small pack so that they fit more easily into the lockers and doors can be closed properly.  Ideally children just need a small P.E bag and their book bag in school.

School Uniform

Please ensure that you label your child’s full uniform, including PE and swimming kits.

Just a polite reminder: please do not leave litter on the school premises.

PE Kits

Could parents please make sure that all pupils have their PE kits ready and in school.  Each pupil has their own locker where their PE kits can be kept during the school term.

Late arrival at school

When your child arrives late at school, he/she misses the teacher's instructions, their morning task and possibly the introduction to the mathematics lesson. Your child may also feel embarrassed at having to enter the classroom late. School begins at 09.00am.  Please help your child to be punctual.
